Na osnovu svojih sećanja, dokumenata iz lične zbirke, arhivskih izvora i istoriografskih radova, autor je prikazao političku delatnost slikara Bore Baruha u Parizu tridesetih godina prošlog veka.
The Paris years of painter Bora Baruh are usually associated with his maturing as an artist and starting a family. His political activity was largely overshadowed by his artistic work, and no research was done to shed light on this aspect of his life. On the basis of his memories and historical sources, dr Sergije Dimitrijevic presented Bora Baruh as a politically active intellectual in the organizations of Yugoslav Communists in France and revealed some valuable new information. As a member of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia and under the leadership of Dimitrijević, Baruh set up his own group of sympathizers among the students. Dimitrijević was president and Baruh secretary of the pro-communist Yugoslav Students' Association in Paris. Baruh was also active in the Yugoslav sub-section of the French Communist Party in the capacity of the associate of its president Dimitrijević. Together, they endeavored to expand the communist organization among Yugoslav workers and students in Fran...ce, and in late 1936 they brought in between 600 and 700 persons. Baruh also assisted Dimitrijević in receiving and dispatching volunteers to the Spanish Republican Army. Disagreement within the top leadership of the Yugoslav communists in France separated Baruh from Dimitrijević, who was dismissed and exposed to boycott. A party commission investigation rehabilitated Dimitrijević, while Baruh and several others were now stigmatized as factionists, and boycotted. Baruh returned to the country in 1938.
